Question Shadow-Line or not ?

I will order my M3 tomorrow but I'm still hesitating about the Shadow-Line option. I will take a Silverstone II and I'm not sure the Shadow-Line will be adapted to this color.
Any idea ?

Matt black is standard and gloss is about 250. I think bmw are taking the p*ss with this option. 250 for different paint!! I think gloss will look better with most colours.

I think bmw have someone in the back office with a dice with different amounts of money on it!

'How much shall we charge for this option?'

'Hang on, i will roll my dice ... Oh look 1000!'

'OK, sounds fair'

Shadow Line is the best!
I can't stand that chrome trim.

not on silverstone II.


EDIT: after looking at the press conference pics, spy pics, and published pictures, i think shadowline would look good with silverstone II, if not all colors.

I'm agree with you that on Siverstone II, the shadow line is maybe not appropriated but as the carbon roof is brilliant, I don't know what to do

Shadow line is standard on the M3 so what are people talking about? The option is 'high gloss' shadow line, which just means it's shiny rather than matt black.

Definately get it, the matte looks like crap, especially with the glossy carbon roof!
